Photography | EU Science Photo Competition

In 2015 Wikipedia launched the Wikimedia Commons’ European Science Photo Competition.

Wikipedia excels in communication of knowledge and science photos are appreciated for their high informational quality, which should make collaboration between wiki community and science photographers beneficial for both. Science photo competition is a motivational framework for catalyzing the formation of sustainable relationship between the two.” (Source: Wikipedia)

You can check out the winners on the dedicated page on  Wikipedia. Here below you can have a look to my personal selection divided by Country of origin.
